The success of your business website depends on several factors viz. the business niche, marketing, customer support, website design and more. However, more than all these factors it is the base on which your website stands that determines its success. In the case of a website, web hosting is the most crucial aspect.
There are several types of web hosting types available, depending on your website type and traffic. If you’re a new website with less traffic then Shared Hosting is a popular choice, as your website traffic grows you may want to switch to either VPS or Cloud Hosting. However, if you’re an established business website with a large customer base it would inevitably mean that your website traffic is higher than when you began, in this case, a Dedicated Server is the preferred web hosting option.
In this article, we’ll help you understand Dedicated Server in detail. Let’s begin.
What is a Dedicated Server?
Dedicated Server or Dedicated Server Hosting is a type of web hosting service that gives you complete control over your web server, hence the name ‘Dedicated’.
In Dedicated Server Hosting, the server and its resources are exclusive for the website hosted on it. Moreover, since only a single website is hosted on the server the security of the website isn’t compromised, and you can manage your resources freely as you wish.
Advantages of Dedicated Server
Aside from the aforementioned features of a Dedicated Server, there are several advantages that can help boost the performance of your website. Here are some of the benefits of a Dedicated Server.
Dedicated Server Hosting is known for its high-end security. The enhanced security is due to the fact that no other website is hosted on the server and chances of malicious attacks, security breaches, and more are considerably reduced.
Greater Control and Customisation
With full-root access or complete control over your server and the resources, you can configure your server and customise it as per your requirements. You can also install any software, CMS, and other addons that your website needs. Furthermore, you can easily manage, update, and upgrade your server resources like RAM, CPU, and disk space as and when your website traffic increases.
If you are running a website that receives high traffic it is crucial that your website has good uptime. With Dedicated Server Hosting, your website’s uptime and bandwidth are high thereby boosting your website’s performance.
When should you switch?
Let’s assume that you’ve invested in another hosting when you initially began your business website, however, with time your website traffic has grown and your resources seem to be insufficient it may be time to switch to another hosting type. Out of the several hosting types available, say, you wish to switch to Dedicated Server Hosting but are confused about whether to switch or not, here are a few reasons to help ease your decision making.
